they say:

"Caught on fire in our driveway.YOU CANNOT DRIVE IT TO THE PROM...STOP ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS...YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! IF YOU ARE NOT LAZY, AND WANT FREE PARTS FOR A DAYS WORK AND $100 IN SCRAP, HERE YOU GO. I rebuilt the transmission 5,000 miles ago with upgraded Corvette parts"...

I wonder why it caught on fire...but I don't want to ask any stupid questions...

GM would have called that something like Burtnwood Metallic Char. Just in case anyone needs to find touch up paint.
